With a two and three year old in the house I'm learning some of what goes on in the mind of a child. Like the other day Alison comes to me and out of the blue she says, "Mom can we put our Christmas tree up?" When I said no and asked her why she told me that if we put our tree up the baby would come. I tried to explain to her that it doesn't work that way. She didn't understand.
Porter the other day came up to me and grabbed my belly. When I asked him what he thought he was doing he told me that he was taking the baby from my tummy. I asked why he would do that and he said because I want you to hold me. I smiled and picked him up gave him a big hug and told him that I could still hold him just not carry him around.
Then last night I was laying on the couch not doing anything but resting and Porter came up to me pulled my blanket off lifted up my shirt and kissed my belly. I asked what he was doing and he told me just kissing my baby brother. He then asked me why he couldn't see the baby even when my shirt was out of the way. How the heck to I explain that one to him? LOL!
